Time to play with Makeup ~ Vely Vely Cushion Compact Foundation
This review is going to be one that I have wanted to write for a very long time. I've been itching to try a cushion since the day I read up about them. I finally got my hands on one and I wanted to document my experience.Cushions, as far as I know, are all the rage right now, especially with Kbeauty lovers. A lighter coverage but with the power of a full facial foundation. With a buildable finish that most foundations lack. The fact it comes in a compact is also amazing because you can control how much you put on by pressing a pad to your face. AND, to note, the pad will always distribute the perfect amount each and every time.Well, enough about cushions--it's time to review Vely Vely Honey Glow!🐝Here are some interesting bits of information:
UV block SPF of 50+ PA+++
No white casting, High sun protecting.
Wrinkle improvement and skin brightening.
It's been Dermatologist tested. Hypoallergenic for sensitive skin. Made from 31% Belgian Hot Spring Spa Water (full of minerals that help the glow!), Honey Glow Propolis (antioxidant, antibacterial, skin renewal. Rich in vitamin B, C & E. A natural healer--Heals minor burns & skin conditions.), Rainbow Collagen Complex (Basically a multivitamin formula that aids in anti-aging by boosting collagen production!) and contains traces of White Sapphire. (To give you a "mirrored" reflection, that *glow*)🐝My Experience:
My skin complexion is quite the odd one. I have a hard time finding foundations that actually work for me and my skintone. My shade is an antique porcelain with traces of a yellowed peachy hue. This cushion in Light is my perfect identical shade. It actually startled me how close to my own skintone it was.In the photos I included throughout this post, I did various different things using my cushion. Swatches on bare skin, the covering of my acne AND my hand tattoo...even a before/after shot for your viewing pleasures.The feeling of it on was very lightweight, almost as if nothing was worn at all. You gently "press" the pad to your skin and it transfers perfectly. The scent of the foundation was a very strong floral. Reminded me of Rose Water! The smell did make my eyes water a bit, I will admit but as soon as you put the foundation on, it completely vanishes.I wore the cushion for a few hours after I took my shots. Noticed around the 1 hour mark, it started to crease and crumble. Mind you, this was without powder or anything to even set it with. No primer, nothing. (The listing claims that you should take a 4 step process--primers, creams and such before you cushion your face! For best results!!)I went back in this time using the extras they sent with my Cushion (realizing last minute that was probably why they gave me those extras--Toner, Serum & Cream sample!) I added more of the product on top but set it this time with a press powder, the dew-like appearance transformed into a beautiful matte finish!! Completely hiding all of my enlarged pores and giving me a flawless face!! I definitely suggest you set it with powder unless you have the skin (or the primer!! Hahaa) to wear it dewy!! I sadly dont...yet! LolThe only negative I have aside from the minor creasing, is I wish they had more of a color selection. More darker skin tones, olive tones and such. Anything other than "Porcelain" and "Light." Just seems unfair, in my honest opinion. It's a great formula that should be shared with everyone!!All in all, I am in love with this cushion! The way it felt, especially when set with powder. The flawless finish with perfect coverage that wasn't suffocating--it all just made me fall in love with it. (Not to mention it came with another refill!! That's like a two in one deal~!) I highly recommend you check this product out if you can. It is one of those bucket list kind of products that MUST be tried once in your lifetime!! You'll definitely not regret that decision! Thank you for viewing my post.
